Reflections within landscapes are interesting—the contrast between land and water, valleys and peaks, space and the lack thereof. Literal yet abstracted views inspired this piece and others. I use the mathematics of ratios within my work, believing that equal ratios are more appealing and bring in the question of purpose in scale. Reflective black liquid plastic serves as a reflective pool. Using oak I was able to achieve the fascinating curves and edges that I see in nature. My artwork consists of a raw aesthetic put alongside polished, more complete elements. This piece fits in perfectly with that style because of the color scheme, the varying textures and its complete composition.
